Cover of book The Explorer by Katherine Rundell

This half term we are basing our English work on ‘The Explorer’ which is set in the Amazonian rainforest. We had all received an intriguing letter which had been sealed with wax. As we opened the letter, it was a diary entry from an explorer in the Amazon rainforest. We used this to explore diary entries. As a class, we did some research on the Amazon River. We even managed to have a virtual boat ride down the Amazon!
